Concentrated programming course for automation engineers

In this 5-day course, you will gain a fundamental understanding of the structure and principles of the SattLine system.

After the course

After the course, you will be able to perform minor programming tasks on your own and also analyze and modify in advanced SattLine applications.

Teaching method

Teaching and course material will be in English.

It is important for us to use exercises as well as inclusion of practical issues from the participants’ own everyday lives. The teaching takes place in modern course facilities with a computer for each participant as well as the use of an advanced teacher-student system.

In order to make our courses even better, we always ask you to evaluate the course on the last day.

Who can participate?

  • Engineers.
  • Technicians.
  • Chemists.
  • Others who need to program in SattLine or participate in projects where there is a need to understand the functions and operation of the SattLine system.

Prerequisites for participating
There is no requirement for prerequisites to participate, but programming experience from other systems is an advantage, eg PLC programming, high-level programming or similar. In addition, it will be an advantage that you have experience from automation projects.

Teacher: Michael Howarth

Michael works on a daily basis in our automation team. He works with and has over time at Confirm made various SCADA systems for the Pharma industry, for both large and small applications.

He has gained SattLine experience both through internal assignments and External projects



We look forward to welcoming you and giving you the best starting point to strengthen your skills.
